Winter came with a vengeance, eh? We feel your cold here now, so you can take it back for the rest of the week. Maybe it will put an end to the mosquitoes at least. :)

Got ice skates?

I'm jealous over the solid sheet of ice. It looks like you could ice skate in it. Ewww to the ice boulders at the end of the driveway...bad snow plow guy. My sympathy on the giant block of fire wood. I just got the news that there is a 40% chance of snow here in PA for Saturday. I'll believe it when I see it.

There's a little talk about snow here too, but they don't think it will make it down to the valley floor. We've heard that before. :) For now it's sunny and frosty. Last nights full moon lit up everything.

Our skilift opened yesterday for the first time this season on Mt. Lemmon (8500+ft) 15 miles from my front door. Down here I had to pull out the winter SHORTS and T-shirts with shoulder covering and switch from sandals to tennies--BRRRRRRRR 8)
27 to 40 F at night----65 to 70 once the sun is up.
